City of Baltimore to Ship Thousands of School Kids to DC for the Anti-Gun "March for Our Lives"

Ah, Baltimore. The other city that never sleeps, primarily because its homicide rate is the highest in the country. Also interestingly, it’s a city big on gun control. How could a city with strict gun laws have such a high murder rate? I thought having more firearm laws would save lives.


But true to the form of the insane, Baltimore is going to keep pushing forward with the idea that doesn’t work and promote gun restrictions by busing school children to Washington D.C. in order to participate in the March for Our Lives event this month. Not just a class, or representatives from a Baltimore school, but 3,000 students total.

What’s more is that Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh has announced that 60 buses will be provided for “free,” to the students who go, as well as meals and free t-shirts, according to the Baltimore Sun’s Kevin Rector.

If that sounds expensive, it’s because it is. The taxpayer will foot the bill at $100,000 according to the mayor’s estimate.

Apparently Baltimore has the cash to throw around, despite the fact that it had to slash the budget just a few years ago thanks to a $75 million shortfall. But hey, when it comes to pushing the leftist narrative at the forefront of everyone’s mind, you spare no expense.


But perhaps the mayor is openly announcing this because there will be some help given to the city to help this little adventure in the promotion of rights stripping. As it’s been revealed, the March for Our Lives is about as grass roots as the local putt-putt golf course’s turf.

Every leftist organization on the who’s who activist list is helping fund and organize the supposedly “student led” march in D.C., including Planned Parenthood, Everytown USA, and the Women’s March. Perhaps Baltimore won’t be footing the bill, or at least won’t be footing most of it. The optics of having thousands of students skipping class to march for Democrat’s cause du jour would be superb, and I doubt any activist group would let such an opportunity go to waste.
